Kitschy, quirky and crazy, Oddfellows offers unforgettable scenery, a perfect patio and the best brunch buffet $8 can buy. Also, where else can you get an alcohol slushy — or “lushy” — topped with potato sticks? Any night is a good night to visit, but we recommend popping in during the “DrunNk SpeLing Be” competition.
